Career History
The Daggers signed the experienced 39 year old centre forward John Taylor following a trial during the summer of 2004.

Born in Norwich in October 1964, John began his career with Colchester United but moved on to Sudbury Town before signing for Cambridge United in 1988. He spent nearly four years at The Abbey Stadium during a successful period for the club starring alongside the likes of Dion Dublin before moving to Bristol Rovers, in March 1992. He enjoyed further success at Rovers and Bradford City before joining Luton Town.

He returned to his first club Colchester United on loan in 1996 having also played for a two-month spell with Lincoln, before returning to Cambridge on a free transfer in January 1997. John was in charge of the reserve team before taking over as manager and, although his appearances in recent seasons had been few, he did break the club's all-time goalscoring record.

John was given a run as caretaker manager of the Cambridge team and with the team's progress to the Southern Area Final of the LDV Vans Trophy, the Board appointed him to continue permanently in the post. After parting company with The Uís in April 2004, John agreed to put his boots back on and join the Daggers where his experience will sit very nicely indeed alongside John Still's otherwise youthful forward line.
